Adobe co-founders John Warnock and Chuck Geschke:

In the end, we believe the question is really this: Who controls the World Wide Web?

The Macalope:

This is not the question at all. Is the iPhone OS the Web? No. That’s ridiculous.

No, the question isn’t whether Apple gets to control the World Wide Web. The question is whether Adobe gets to. If Adobe gets to define the Web as including Flash, then they get to control the Web — you can only claim you support the Web (as Apple’s TV ads got in trouble for claiming in the UK) if you follow Adobe’s rules. It’s not surprising Adobe’s cofounders don’t want to give that up.

Steve Jobs’ Thoughts on Flash, in Flash. Big improvement.

(Better: Adobe Flash CS4 crashed twice while I threw this together.)
